That’s why we created Ascent and packed it with in-depth information to help you grow your business. Ascent is divided into major topics called Journeys, developed by experts in women's entrepreneurship. Choose any journey to start, skip the ones you already know. Within each Journey, you'll find Excursions with the tools you need to master a topic. Each excursion includes a time estimate for completion. You're the boss of when and how to apply these tools to your business. To learn more about Ascent attend this fact-filled  presentation!
